It was a wee bit too cold to really enjoy any of that , but we did stay there a while and I did get to see some shops and browse a little and as always I enjoyed the architecture.. the buildings are mostly low , old fashioned and colorful and extremely charming, in my opinion.

I am also not sure of the spelling of some places so we will all pretend that we don't notice anything misspelled.
Aside from plenty of bag shops
There is a Starbucks , oh well... and plenty of cafes and ethnic places, but we ended up not eating there at all. But I got to go to Paul, my all time new favorite place to shop for things for the Home. I bought Jasmin room spray last visit, this time it is Oceanico. I have no idea what it actually smells like, except that it is crisp and clean and not as flowery as Jasmin. I take after my grandmother, I like lots of scent everywhere. My husband pretty much can live without it but he tolerates these scents.
I love this shop.. this is all there is to let you know that to the right, down a narrow little walkway, opening to a garden and garden shop, is this beautiful space full of "rooms" full of beautiful Things. Dishes, flat and handmade and not quite white, not really grey. On old tables made of ancient wood, with silver candlesticks and bubbly not quite perfect wine glasses. Sofas with great fat pillows covered in wonderful soft fur and velvets. Chandeliers with wire flowers entwined around them , rooms of linens and cooking utensils.. rusty old mirrors that only look a tiny bit older than that in my bathroom !I have no photos- when I asked if I could take a photo or two, I was told no.But here is the walk In and the walk Out ...
Color in the buildings here and there and a great mix of modern and old.
